When reloading xp pro, how can we get windows updates since they are not supporting it.  I thought we should still be able to get updates up to when they quit putting them out.  Does anyone have a good idea on how to get updates up to when they quit posting them?

No support...means that nothing new is being put forth...all of the critical updates issued to date are still available via either Windows Update or Microsoft Update if they have not been installed on current O/S.

I get updates for my Office software...but I don't know why I still get Malicious Software Removal Tool updates if it's no longer being supported.

the first link is for SP3....just in case you want that too.

 

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24

 

and the next one is for the Microsoft Download Centre....there are updates there dating back to 2003

 

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/search.aspx?q=xp

 

 

Be advised that there are in excess of 200 pages @ 10 updates per page .......even if only 60% of these are needed (and that decision whether they are needed or not is entirely up to you) you will have 1200 updates to sort through at your leisure....or...

 

you could just update to Windows 7.
